    Recently we’ve received a lot of questions and requests for advice regarding implementing Low Traffic Neighbourhoods so we thought we would share our knowledge with our clients by hosting a webinar with Landor on Tuesday 11 August, 10.30am.

    Our Technical Director Chris Harrison who has designed LTNs for Waltham Forest, Tower Hamlets and Haringey will be speaking alongside Waltham Forest Deputy Leader Councillor Clyde Loakes who implemented a Mini Holland scheme in the borough and Barbara Wade, Liverpool City Region’s Local Transport Planning Manager where they are currently implementing a number of cycling schemes. The panellists will be kept in check by our very own Senior Urban Designer Saskia Huizinga who will be chairing the webinar.
